the news.

I promised you exciting news, so here it is!!  for the last couple weeks, I've been working feverishly on my (drum roll please...) brand. new. website!!  

okay, fine, it's much more exciting for me than for you, but I'm excited for you to check it out.  it's about 99% done, and I can't wait to see what you think (the products section is still under construction, but will be done soon enough).  so, hop over here, give it a little look-see, and let me know what you think.  seriously, let me know.  I would love to get any feedback in terms of improvement, coloring (is it too plain?  I'm all about the simple, but is this way too simple?),wording, etc. 

so, here's the really exciting part.  for the official launch of my website (which will be on Monday), I'm offering ALL my packages, including weddings, at FIFTY PERCENT OFF.  for seven days only, if you get your appointment on the books, you pay 50% of the full price.  reason?  I'm so sad to be leaving pittsburgh, and I want to get as many of you on the books that want to be on the books.  :)   I can promise you this is a one time deal, so take advantage! 
here are the details:

1. appointment must be booked between march 22 and march 29.
2.  at the time of booking, package must be chosen and upfront 50% payment must be made to reserve your appointment.
3.  if you're booking in pittsburgh, the last date I'll be shooting sessions is may 14th.
4. if you're booking in phoenix, the first date I'll be shooting sessions is june 1st.  

so spread the word!  oh, and while we're here, what do you think of my new business cards??  really, I want to know what you think.  I'm putting the order in monday.  :)

aaron - 2 years.

there is a special place in  my heart for this little guy.  one, he's probably the sweetest little guy you'll ever meet.  two, he's my nephew, and I couldn't love him more.
by the by, exciting things to come tomorrow.  be sure to check back.
without any further ado, check out a few these adorable 2 year old photos: 


miss 'm' turns one! - pittsburgh child photographer

one of my best friend's daughter turned one... last december.  somehow these didn't make it on the blog... here are a few of the shots we caught for her one year old pictures.


flashback to the "k" family

a cute family from last fall.  things got so crazy around the holidays that I never posted these.
that blonde curly hair is to die for!

flashback to the "w" family

yet another family post that didn't make it up last fall.  check out the watsons.  they were so much fun to work with.  the little guy was 10 weeks old (WAY older than I ever shoot for newborns), but we actually got him to sleep for a few minutes.  I love, love, LOVE the hat shot (hat made by my amazing sister-in-law).  this is such a cute little guy.  see for yourself:


"m" family - pittsburgh family photographer

isn't this little boy just about the cutest thing you've ever seen?  his dark eyes and pink cheeks are the perfect combo.  we found a fluke afternoon when the temperatures were in the 40's (it hasn't happened since), got outside, and snuck some photos of this cute little family.  I love their greys and oranges.  my clients are the best.  :)
